    15 Classical Paintings As Beautiful Gifs

    Courtesy of artist Rino Stefanota Gliafierro.

    The process took about five years, Gliafierro told BuzzFeed. "Before I developed the pictures through a photo editing software, then I animated and edited, and then I went to work the sound designer Enrico Ascoli who was in charge of 'audio'." The gifs are part of the resulting short film Beauty.
